Love this!! But no refills?

I bought the frisco cardboard refills suggested as being paired with this, but they're too big! We don't use catnip in our house because every one of our cats gets very violent on it, but they started using the scratcher immediately regardless. I guess I will have to cut down the cardboard "refills" myself and hope I can get them to fit, but that's incredibly inconvenient for me. I have carpal tunnel and arthritis and could hardly be bothered. I wish there were proper refills available.

Amazing purchase!!

Our cats never seemed that into the rope scratching posts on their cat trees -- they much preferred the side and backs of couches. They'd tried cardboard scratchers loose but really didn't like how they slid around. On a whim, we tried this. It's excellently made -- really easy to put together, nice and light material, looks good in the room -- and the cats love that it a) holds the scratcher in place and b) keeps it at a nice incline. The added catnip is a bonus. If you have wood/laminate floors, you may need to 'attach' it to the floor with command strips / blutack if your cats are like ours and use it as a launching board for zoomies.

The new favorite scratcher in the house

This cat scratcher has become the favorite of the house. We purchased this design along with another and the kitty cats of the house definitely prefer this design. Especially when we sprinkle the catnip it came with on the cardboard scratching piece. Will probably purchase again when this one needs to be. Would recommend to all cat owners who have cats who like to sometimes scratch areas of the house they are not supposed to. So far this is keeping the kitties from scratching the woodwork in the hallway. Win for them and win for us humans!

He loves it!

I ordered this accidentally for my cat, but he loves scratching and has recently taken up scratching at the door frames, so I figured this could give him a new focus. He loves it! He prefers it on the ground over it being positioned as it is in the picture (up against the wall). According to my husband, he uses it "backwards", because he sits at the top of the board and scratches at the bottom. Whatever way gets him to stop scratching the walls is good enough for me. I also discovered he loves the silvervine, so I'll be getting some more of that for him ( I didn't even know it was a thing until buying this). My husband nicknamed it "the scratch machine" - I dont know why I thought it was so funny, but it's pretty funny.

The cats loves it! It looks so much better than just the cheaper scratch pads.

It was easy to put together and the cats love that it is inclined. It looks so much better than the cheap scratch pads in the paper boxes. I just need to know how to buy the replacement scratch pad inserts.

Finally one the kittens like!

We have tried so many scratchers and the kittens didn't care about any of them until I got this one! This one doesn't move when they use it, and I like how you can flip it- put it against the wall or the floor.

great scratcher and litter box ramp

Both my kitties love this quality cardboard and the silver vine catnip it comes with! This also doubles as a litter box ramp for my elderly cat too.

Great Piece, Bad Catnip

I didn't know how many stars to give, because the actual scratching post was fantastic, and my cat loved it! It was just the catnip sack in powder form that I sprinkled on it... my cat had such a bad reaction, and then a full blown ear infection, and a $700 vet bill later and he's still not 100%. So I would suggest before you sprinkle the powder catnip on it, to just try a little with your cat separately and wait a week to make sure they don't have a bad reaction.

My cat loves the incline scratcher

Easy to put together and my cat actually prefers the paperboard scratchers. She did not have one like this, but loves it and uses it frequently.

Margaret Approved

Actually all cat approved but Margaret took it over and won’t share. It was easy to assemble and the cats really love scratching it. They love the catnip that came with it too.
